I am an incoming Research Scientist at University of California, Los Angeles, working with Bolei Zhou. Since 2019, I have been a Cooperative Researcher at MMLab at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, working with Chen Change Loy. Previously, it was pleasant to work with Dahua Lin and Xiaogang Wang closely. In June 2022, I obtained my PhD in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at Tsinghua University.

The central goal of my research is to make Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems more and more usable. An AI system includes two critical functions: 1) perceiving the real world that AI interacts with and 2) expressing the personal characteristic/action and situated environment of AI itself. To ultimately achieve the usability of AI systems, my research focuses on the following two key directions: 1) learning to perceive the real world to make the perceiving more effective with less supervision and 2) learning to generate/re-create the digital world to make the expressing easier with less human intervention. Further, my research also involves the construction of datasets and open-source software to facilitate the development of academia, centered around these two research directions. Moving forward, I am recently passionate about human-like AI systems., which will have better common sense in their perceiving system, as well as better creativity in their expressing system.
